[access-uk] Re: Tvonics Freeview Talking Recorder

Well, I'll risk that one. The Freeview TV isn't really up to our expectations in some respects so we'll change it, or something, if needed, but think everything will work out OK anyway.

Hi Carol and Darren

Yeah, me too.  A very funny take on what Will has turned into a gloomy and
negative thread! (smiles).

Carol, we also have a TV with Freeview built into it, but I don't think that
will matter once you connect up the box.  Only guessing here mind.


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Put it in your loft for 50 years then take it to the antiques roadshow.

who is going to buy though the goodmans boxes people may want to sell
though now and the 600 quid portset freeview box, now that we can get
this?
sighted people aren't going to want the portset boxes so what  do people
do with those?

Hi William.

*Sigh*, you really don't get the point do you?  This is not some piece
of junk, this is a top quality commercial PVR Freeview tuner with full
text to speech, even the menus and virtually all other functions are
accessible with the exception of internet and teletext, well worth it at

twice the price. The recorder even looks the piece, a really well
designed and well crafted piece of equipment.

All the best, Ibrahim.

I have been using the Tvonics box for the past 3 weeks and absolutely
love it. Pretty much every feature speaks apart from the BBC Iplayer.
The box is of course upgradable so it may well be possible for Tvonics

to make the Iplayer speak.

I really don't think this is a major downside as everything else on
the box is accessible. The speech is smooth and responsive, you can
add, delete and edit timers, You can series link tv/radio programs and

much more. When fast forwarding and rewinding you have audio feedback
as to how far you have moved through the program.

A couple of years ago it was looking as if an accessible PVR would be
in the range of £500/600 but we have a box for almost a quarter of
that figure.

I don't think anyone will be dissapointed by either the features or
the performance of this box.

It's what we've been waiting for.

I am writing this from a personal standpoint rather than from an RNIB
sales point of view.
